Tree Pruning

Proper tree pruning within your landscape is paramount for safety, aesthetics, and health of trees, as well as the overall health of your landscape.  Here is a list of reasons why tree pruning is a must:

1.  Healthy Trees:  Pruning removes dead and diseased branches, improving sunlight within the canopy.  This helps prevent diseases from stagnant air.

2.  Growth:  Enhanced growth occurs from properly pruning trees and shrubs. Taking away unnecessary branches will increase the health of existing limbs.3.  Safety:  Routine pruning removes weak, dead, or broken branches that could create a hazard to people, pets, and property.  It greatly reduces the chance of falling branches or entire trees.

4.  Curb Appeal:  Pruning will enhance a tree’s shape and appearance, making it more attractive and flowing with its surroundings.  Well-pruned trees provide an overall beauty of a well-maintained landscape.

5.  Utility Line Clearing:  Trees that grow near utility lines will need to be pruned periodically.  Pruning these trees will lessen the likelihood of future power outages.

6.  Historic Tree Preservation:  Historic and exotic trees will benefit from proper pruning, extending their lifespan.  This will allow future generations to enjoy the landscape the way we currently do.

7.  Long-Term Costs:  Keeping a routine schedule for pruning can be more cost-effective than emergency tree mitigation or extensive tree pruning.

8.  Wildlife Habitat:  Proper pruning in your landscape can reduce the likelihood that unwanted creatures will call your property home.  Raccoons, skunks, and opossums are less likely to choose your manicured property.
